Nintendo and Universal Parks & Resorts team up for theme park attractions

Universal logoUniversal Parks & Resorts and Nintendo are partnering up to get Nintendo’s own characters and properties into a number of theme parks such as Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.

The companies will work together on creating “spectacular, dedicated experiences based on Nintendo?s wildly popular games, characters and worlds”.  The development of these attractions is only in the planning stages apparently, so it’ll probably be a while before we can hop aboard a Mario Kart coaster of some sort. So stay tuned for more announcements in the future.

Read on for the announcement.

Nintendo and Universal Parks & Resorts today announced plans to bring the world of Nintendo to life at Universal theme parks ? creating spectacular, dedicated experiences based on Nintendo?s wildly popular games, characters and worlds.
